A lot has been going on lately. Some good. Most good. But also some hard times as well. I've been going through a lot lately and am working to get through it. This mom stuff isn't easy. In fact, it's the hardest job I've ever had. Seriously. A lot of times it is just me, no husband because he has to make the money, so it's just me and two kids. My conversations are usually "did you go poo poo?" and "do that again and it's time out". Don't get me wrong - I love being a stay at home mom (damn that's still hard to admit), but sometimes I long for adult conversation.
Anywho...I've been trying to keep busy. Busier than I have been...which actually does not sound sane. I've taken up walking in the morning. It's nice. Peaceful (even with two kids). It's also good for me.
We've also done a bit lately. We've gone to Marine World (yes I know it's called Discovery Kingdom - but it will always be "Marine World" to me). We bought season passes since the place is literally 2 minutes from our house. Emily LOVES it. Allison could care less!
Love this first picture of Emily and her friend looking at each other!
We also spent a day in the snow. All the resorts are closed and the season is pretty much over - but there is still a lot of snow! We found a Sno-Park and were the only ones there! Emily and her friend had a BLAST! Allison, again, could care less.
This one is of the girls flipping over - I love this one!
When all else fails...slide down on your tummy!
And amongst all our outings - our toddler also transitioned into big-girldom. She now has her very own big girl's bed! It's been pretty easy for the most part. She's gotten up in the middle of the night quite a few times but she loves it!
On the baby front...Allison is doing well! She just had her 4 month check up (although she's almost 5 months). She is at the 50th percentile for weight and 90th percentile for height! The kid is 26 inches tall! She's cutting her first tooth which is sloooowwwwllllyyy coming in. You can see it - but it's just not all the way through yet. Hopefully the little bugger will pop through and she will be a little happier. Don't get me wrong - she is a GREAT baby - but there are more and more moments lately where she's fussy over that darn thing!
So that's the latest update for all you family members and friends who have been bugging me to add pictures and update on the girls!
Well - I'm off to relax for now. Both kids are sleeping for the moment and I'm going to *try* and take advantage of it. Hope I didn't just jinx myself!
